Are you looking for an exciting way to spice up your next dinner night? Why not try out a Cape Malay Samosas recipe! These South African favorites are perfect for those who love exploring new and exotic flavors.

During the cooking class, our instructor bought samosa dough leaves at her local grocer in Cape Town. But, you could also make the samosa dough from scratch. I typically substitute it with phyllo dough.

Chop onions and fresh coriander finely using a very sharp knife so as not to mash or create watery onion bits. Set aside.

Mix together the flour and water in a small bowl to make a paste for sealing the samosas. Set aside.

In a large pan, dry toast the spices (curry powder, turmeric, and masala) for about one to two minutes until fragrant.

Next, mix in the onions and cook until they start to turn clear. Add in the meat, ginger, and garlic and cook for about 30-45 minutes.

Mix cilantro and chile peppers into cooled beef mixture. Place a spoonful of the mixture onto each samosa/phyllo dough sheet.
